Oh that is going to hurt.
The last time I came off a bike it did some fairly serious damage and my Missus wont let me get on another.

Great collection of shots, although some of them are cropped slightly too tightly. I would give a bit more room in front of the vehicle than behind ..... it gives the impression of having somewhere to move into and helps with the sense of movement

Wow Scott, I'll bet that hurt him, I don't think the K100d would be quick enough to capture this , not sure about the K200d, your K10d certainly is up to the mark, and another fantastic picture from you.
